BGU scientists discover genetic link between aging brain and cancers

Researchers from Ben-Gurion University (BGU) have identified a gene responsible for activating glioblastoma, a type of brain cancer, which is also partly responsible for aging in our brain. 

The study, led by Dr. Barak Rotblat of BGU’s Department of Life Sciences in the Faculty of Natural Sciences and of the National Institute for Biotechnology in the Negev (NIBN), was published in the peer-reviewed journal Aging late last week. The same genes that make glioblastoma resistant to chemotherapy are activated in an aging brain, according to the research. And these genes were unknown before the study. “Studying cancer teaches us about aging and vice versa,” Rotblat said. Read the full article.
